I don't expect a high level of customer service when ordering a takeaway coffee, a simple greeting, smile and thank you/you're welcome would more than suffice. Unfortunately the guy serving us on Friday either hated his job or felt he was on a different level to his customers. Needless to say with that sort of attitude I was expecting a coffee from heaven, sadly all i got was an average coffee from a guy needing to learn some social ettiquette.
A nice little coffee shop on an ordinary street, but relatively close to the Barbican underground station. Lattes were excellent and served on two sizes, one almost a piccolo size and the other just a bit larger than an Aussie regular latte. Dose tries different coffee combos and the result on our visit was a smooth and pleasant taste which was very easy to drink although it could have been abut stronger. A great option if you are visiting the London Museum nearby.
In my humble opinion, this place serves the best coffee in London. Like the soundtrack they have playing too! The only thing I'm not too keen on is their pastries; the croissants have a sourdough chewiness to them which I don't like. The square crème brulee tarts on the other hand are to die for! Bit pricy, but hey, go ahead and treat yourself!
Really nice cafe and excellent espresso and very friendly staff and nice cakes. No bonsoy and unfortunately they had bought into the reheat the coffee with the soy milk craze that was started by Prufrock a while back and is going round some of London's coffee shops. NOT how you make a soy with acidic coffee!! It tastes awful. You are reheating the espresso, do that to your normal latte and see if you like it. The right way is (thank you kaffeine and curator coffee!): mix a little bit of the heated up soy milk with the coffee, then pour in the rest of the soy milk…. They actually tried it for me and it worked perfectly fine even with very acidic coffee and some other soy milk. Thank you!
